Donna Druchunas’ Alaska Blog Page

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

Donna Druchunas is on one of my email lists. I don’t know her at all other than on this list, but I do know her name from her writings.

LynnH Basketweave RugDonna wrote a book called “The Knitted Rug,” which somehow I don’t have yet. I have knitted several rugs and designed one pattern for my Basketweave Rug, but I guess I am typically more excited about making up my own designs on the needles than following someone else’s patterns.

I think I’ll end up buying the book someday because I believe it has some historical information in it. I am always interested in historical background about our arts of knitting/fiberwork.

But I digress. Donna has a book in the works about knitting with the fiber called qiviut (musk ox wool), and she went to Alaska to do some research. She wrote a blog during her trip and you may find it interesting.
